Then, what is the Goode Homolosine projection used for?
The Goode homolosine projection (or interrupted Goode homolosine projection) is a pseudocylindrical, equal-area, composite map projection used for world maps. Normally it is presented with multiple interruptions. Its equal-area property makes it useful for presenting spatial distribution of phenomena.
Additionally, is Goode's interrupted Homolosine projection a conformal or equivalent equal area projection? The Interrupted Goode Homolosine projection (Goode's) is an interrupted, pseudocylindrical, equal-area, composite map projection that can present the entire world on one map. Global land masses are presented with their areas in proper proportion, with minimal interruption, and minimal overall distortion.
Also know, why did Paul Goode interrupted his Homolosine projection?
The projections are interrupted so that either the land masses (except for Antarctica) or the oceans are connected. All latitudes are straight lines. There are six straight longitude lines due to the interrupted nature of the projection.
What map projection has the most distortion?
In most maps, when you try to fix one kind of distortion, you increase another kind of distortion. However, Mercator is one of those rare maps whose answer to latitudinal distortion was to ensure that the longitudinal distortion is equally bad! On a Mercator projection, Greenland is roughly the same size as Africa.
